Episode 13: The Story of my Miscarriage

We rarely talk about it, and yet it happens to so many of us, and often when it does, it wounds. In this episode, Soniah Kamal tells about a miscarriage that hit her hard. Her essay, called "The Face of Miscarriage," appeared in a slightly different form in the New York Times. Alison and Kate also discuss why, exactly, there is such a cultural taboo around the m-word. 

Also in this episode, the great manners our toddlers learn…from other people.

Note: This episode contains explicit detail about miscarriage. It's definitely not for kids, and if such material really bothers you, this may be a good one to skip.
